Coach Dave Love is Back!

Posted by Christian Hudon at Nov 22, 2021 12:07PM PST

Coach Dave Love and Golden Ticket Sports are excited to announce that NBA Shooting Coach Dave Love will be running an extensive FULL-DAY shooting clinic for the players in Prince Albert.

Coach Love has worked for the Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Phoenix Suns working with some of the best players in the world, including Aaron Gordon, Tristan Thompson, Dewayne Dedmon, Elfrid Payton and Bismack Biyombo.

Every player that Coach Love has worked with has shot a career high during that time, including several players improving as much as 30% in one season.

Coach Love is world renowned for helping players make subtle adjustments to their shooting mechanics that UNLOCK HUGE POTENTIAL! He has taught everyone from youth players to NBA players alike how different parts of their bodies affect their shot, and how small changes can lead to BIG RESULTS!

Coach Love also helps players understand how to isolate bad habits, relearn them as better habits, and layer drills to apply those habits. Too many coaches just tell players what to do and expect the player to try to break the habit, and to do it at game speed. All too often the players fail, and it isn’t their fault. Coach Love teaches players how to layer drills to unlock their potential.

At this special camp, Coach Love will take players through the same progression of drills that he uses with his NBA clients that help them identify their weaknesses and learn a process for improving the details that are holding them back. Throughout the event, Coach Love will tell stories of details that NBA players struggled with, how they are the same as many youth players, and what those players did to improve.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to get up close and personal with one of the best shooting coaches in the world.

Sign up early to reserve your spot as space is limited.
